Kipling Memorial Health Centre

Constructed in 1948, this is an active treatment acute general hospital. An addition of a large service area and five beds was made in 1960. A renovation period also took place in 1978/79, which increased the size of the Laboratory and outpatient area. Plans are in the place for building a new integrated Health Facility in the near future. The original hospital was dedicated as a permanent memorial to the veterans of two great World Wars; hence, it derives the "Memorial" in its title.

The Kipling Memorial Health Centre exists for the primary purpose of rendering the best possible patient care. In addition to inpatient and outpatient services, the following additional services are based out of the hospital:
